Amazon Favorite round-ups are some of my favorite posts. Usually, I talk about what I bought myself, but let’s talk about the things that I’ve bought for Cannon. Mainly, during the 12-24 month period as I cleaned out of the things that were classified under baby. Cannon’s been a toddler for some time, so this post is quite late.
Now, we’re passed the holiday season and I feel that honest reviews of toys and toddler items are going to pop up. We can all worry about birthdays and just because gifts now.
When it comes to buying toys and items for my tot, I’m really focused on making sure the toy is going to be played with and that there is some aspect of learning to it. Whether it’s learning to count, singing a song, practicing housekeeping, or using his imagination. I’m very into toys that are going to be useful to Cannon’s development.
Does that sound not fun? I promise it’s fun. Even Cannon’s cars and trucks have a learning aspect. From stopping and go to the different types of trucks and what they do, we engage his mind. Right now, his favorite thing is to scream out at trucks that drive past us or tell me to drive faster or tell the cars in front of us to ‘watch out!’. It’s definitely a lot with this kid.
Here’s why I love these Amazon items:
These are some of Cannon’s and my favorites when it comes to his toys and items that he has. Outside of cute training pants from Target, these are the items that we found on Amazon that were stellar with Cannon.
If you’re like me then you had a rambunctious and active toddler, and you need things to keep that little babe busy. I get it. Cannon is pushing his lawnmower around one minute and then getting into the dog food bin, the next. It’s like he can’t stop moving which is why I need certain items to keep him busy.
If I have to rank out of all of these items, I would say the water table was our best purchase. Cannon could play for hours in this and he would if we let him. Prune fingers were a staple this past summer. This was definitely my favorite purchase because I could work in the yard while he made waves and splashes in the yard.
The Singing Piggy Bank was perfect for helping with learning numbers and counting — Cannon loves to count now! We’ve had it since he was one. His vacuum is the perfect distraction to get him away from the real deal. When I vacuum, Cannon wants to vacuum so obviously, this had to be bought. It’s been a hit and my kid likes to clean which is why we got the Swifter, too. The easel was a last-minute buy, but it’s been utilized quite a bit. Cannon likes art and this has been our thing to draw with chalk or fingerprint.
Hopefully these ideas give you something to add to a birthday list or two! I know that I’ll be gifting some of these items to a few tots that I know.
